Jesica Lou welcome to our happy band of losers i to found that the weight loss increased when i combined running with the controlling my eating through Weight Watchers i had been trying for about 2 years to lose the weight on my own without any luck

But have to say have no one to blame but myself and my total lack of self control keep posting and let us know how thing progress

I'm making good progress with the physio, not quite ready for running, but at least able to start some swimming.  The good news is my weight has pretty much levelled off at 12 stone, 1 stone heavier than I was in October for Mara, but still nearly 2 stone lighter than I was 18 months ago.  Considering I haven't been able to do much traininng since the marathon for various reasons, and that my diet has been less than ideal, I'm pretty pleased that their hasn't been to much damage done on the scales.

Great photos Toby, fantastic progress.

*waves to everyone.

Did 10 miles on Saturday and a lovely (yes, really!) 20 miles yesterday. Parked up at Pembrey country park, which is a huge site full of pine forest trails. So did some trail running before heading our along the coast, then back into the park for more trails. All in all, it took about 3.30 so I took advice from the Brighton Marathon thread to slow my LSRs down!

Weight-wise, I'm still hovering around the mark I've been for a while. Need to kick myself into gear again!

Toby - sounds like you had a bargain! Got my race pack through for Llanelli today. Will be in touch in a day or so to work out how/where to meet you.

JLB - good news with the physio and the damage limitation!

I've been struggling for weeks at 9-13 / 10 stone.

This week no running at all resting my slightly twisted knee, and a sneak peek pre tea tonight had me at 9st 11.5 lbs!!! How the heck did that happen.

Good running all, my first marathon is on Sunday at Pitsford, actually getting abit nervous as only a small field of about 200 and I am not the quickest runner, but it is only really meant to be a training run, but I thionk the competitive streak is coming out in me.

Weight wise at 12st 7lbs, which is good for me, could do with abit less but much less and I dont have the energy for my long runs.

take care evryone and keep up all the good work

Hi all,

Enjoying a rain-free running week for a change and I'm pleased to report that Sunday (Llanelli half marathon day) is set for more of the same. Toby: looks like it will be dry, cloudy and about 2-3 degrees. But experience tells me that a good chunk of the route along the estuary will feel colder.

I'm race number 2167. I'm about 6 ft 3 with little hair! I'll be with at least one other runner, but I'll keep an eye out for you and yours near the entrance and the start. Do you want me to message you my mobile number?

Hope to see you on the day!

Hi to everyone else - hope you're all running well.

Thanks, Booey - looking forward to it.

My marathon training gets back on schedule next week too: 5 miles on Tues and Thurs, 10 on Weds and Sat, and 20 on Sun - cool 50 for the week. Gulp!

Well, that's the Llanelli Half done and dusted. I was hoping to knock a couple of minutes off my PB to get below the 1:55 mark - and ended up knocking nearly 8 minutes off to come in at 1:49:27!! You have no idea how chuffed I am!

I haven't looked too closely at my splits but I know I covered 10k in 50:57 (a PB in itself) and the 10 mile point was at around 1:22 (previous PB was about 1:30. Waiting for the official results to be published but hopefully there won't be too much of a discrepancy between Garmin and chip!

It was a cold, cold day and a chilly wind at the half way stage didn't help, but it was a cracking run. Also pleased to meet Toby and his misses before the race - nice to put faces to names at last.

Hope you've all had a productive weekend.
